Have You Ever Brought a Book… (Response)

Here’s the list (and the story)…

  1. into the bathroom? Yes. Sometimes a book is just too good to put down!
  2. on a plane? Yes. But I was feeling too sick to read it.
  3. to a party? No.
  4. to a job interview? Yes. Because I didn’t know how long I was going to have to wait.
  5. to a book signing? Yes. I brought 2 books for R. A. Salvatore to sign when he was at PCM. I got one for my brother and the other for my dad.
  6. to a sleep over? No.
  7. to work? Yes. I bring a book to work every shift. It’s a nice way to give my mind a rest while I’m on break.
  8. to a hospital? Yes. When Eric was in the hospital I had a book. He wasn’t in a state to chat, so it was nice to have something to occupy myself. And well, I’ve worked in hospitals so I’ve brought them to a hospital for that reason too.
  9. to the gym? No.
  10. just in case? Most always.
  11. to trade it? No.
  12. as a present? Yes. I buy books as presents almost every Christmas. My family is full of bibliophiles.
  13. camping? Yes. But I didn’t read it.
  14. to a park? No.
  15. to give away? Yes. I’ve left books in public places for some one else to pick up any enjoy. Those wandering books can be a lot of fun.
  16. for some else? Yes. I used to bring a book for Elspeth to read when she was little.
  17. to class? Yes, many.
  18. to destroy it? No.
  19. to recycle? Yes. When my nursing text books got to be a decade old, they became so out dated that they were useless and not something that anyone else would want. So, I recycled them
  20. to donate? Yes. I’ve donated books to a library.
  21. to a store? No.
  22. to a restaurant? Yes. I went to a restaurant by myself once and brought a book for a quite meal.
  23. when you visited someone’s grave? No.
  24. with the intention of reading it to some one else? Yes. I’ve brought books to my sister’s house to share with my nephews.
  25. because it is a habit? Yes. I almost always carry a book with me.
